Issue 130, “On the Addressee,” explores a bond experienced between friends, artists and/or writers from different generations and across centuries, exposing what is sharable in our time and bringing new light to the question of the Addressee. Almost a century after the Russian poet Osip Mandelstam wrote a homonym essay in 1913, we are reconsidering the question he asked, “To whom does the poet speak?” while he was considering a call another Russian poet addressed in 1828 to a posthumous reader. Issue 130 considers a secret and urgent call that artists, poets and thinkers inscribe in their most intimate and demanding works: a call addressed to unknowable or posthumous addressees. We are also paying tribute to our 1990 edition, issue 75, guest edited by the Italian publisher Ginevra Bompiani, titled “The Mood of Our Time.” We are thinking about, in the idea of “mood,” whether it has a temporary or lasting effect on ourselves and on the present time: how do we engage in the possibility of sharing such lasting effects? What is left at the core of our intimacy that is owned by no one, and can be transmitted in a “sharing” without presuppositions or sovereign figures? We are seeking to know in our experiences in art today what a “call” and an “addressee” are by listening to earlier calls left by thinkers like Giorgio Agamben or Jean-Luc Nancy, in Bompiani’s volume and by recalling the human relationship with the Earth as well as relations between, parent and child, teacher and student, and the unknowable or posthumous friend.
